Compulsory purchase & compensation

We act on behalf of clients facing Compulsory Purchase or who have been Blighted by a proposed Authority or Utility company scheme. 

We have also prepared compensation claims under Part 1 of the Land Compensation Act 1973. These Part 1 claims can be considered one year and day after a qualifying project has been completed, provided an increase in Physical Factors can be shown. The Physical Factors include vibration, fumes, artificial light, noise and also discharge of substances from the newly constructed project onto a clients property. Not all of the Physical factors need to be shown to be present for a Part 1 claim to be successful. The main compensation sought in successful Part 1 cases is for the depreciation in value of a property as a result of the scheme. 

Statute provides for various heads of claim in compensation cases and we work hard to ensure that our clients receive what they are entitled to. We represent our clients when negotiating with the Utility Companies and Authorities surveyors. Negotiations can be lengthy on occasion although we keep our clients informed of progress with regular updates.
